The Destructive Element by Jesse Hendley

The Destructive Element
Jesse M. Hendley
Judges 6

Now, friends, if you have your Bibles, I want you to turn
with me to the Book of Judges, chapter 6, and we are
studying the wonderful experience of Gideon, a type of the
man whom God blesses. We found certain elements in the
character of Gideon, the way he acted, his attitudes, his
thinking, that God blesses and we find as we read the Bible
